TAL-Tube is a
saturation plugin that have the characteristic of tubes
and an additional amplifier mode. It's very suitable for
adding higher harmonics and can give more excitement and
analog character to digital sounds or drums.
At extreme values it can also be used as a grungy
GMulti is a
three-band compressor and stereo enhancer. First, the
signal is split at user-defined frequencies into three
bands. Each of these bands can then be compressed
independently and have its stereo width altered before
being mixed back together. The compression of each band
is specified in the usual manner with threshold, ratio,
attack and release controls.
Imagine a standard compressor with a filter
inserted in the side-chain, so that it only responds to certain
frequencies. Now imagine that instead of controlling the overall gain of
the signal, it only controls the volume of specific frequencies.. you
just discovered dynamic EQ!
In other words, it can compress or expand specific
frequencies in a similar manner to multi-band compression (but with
a very different character) or it can de-ess, or perform more
esoteric functions such as ducking one frequency when another is
LMC-1 is a faithful recreation of
the Listen Mic Compressor from SSL's legendary "E"
The SSL Listen Mic Compressor was the secret
weapon in many producers sonic arsenal of recording techniques.
Originally designed to prevent overloading the return feed from a studio
communications mic, its fixed attack and release curves were eminently
suitable for use on ambient drums mics. Of course, we’d like to take all
the credit for this great sound, but as usual, it was the creativity of
SSL users that led to the idea.
Now you can experience the Listen Mic Compressor
within the comfort of your own workstation software and see what sounds
it’ll lead you to create. If you discover something really great – like
a radical new distorted oboe sound then be sure to let us know.
